Join Amoeba Music, Boing Boing, Noisepop, and the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco on Thursday, January 31st in welcoming legendary bassist Peter Hook of Joy Division and New Order to the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco! Mr. Hook will interview live that evening with David Pescovitz, Co-Editor of Boing Boing, and sign his new book Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division.
Godfathers of alternative rock, Joy Division, reinvented music in the post-punk era, creating a dark, hypnotic, and intense sound that has influenced rock ever since. Founding member Peter Hook’s propulsive bass guitar melodies came to define an era and inspire a generation. After iconic lead singer Ian Curtis’s suicide, the remaining members went on to form New Order, creators of synth-pop and one of the most critically acclaimed and influential bands of the 1980s.
Amoeba Music is proud to be in attendance with an Amoeba Pop-Up Shop, providing copies of the new book for sale as well as loads of CDs, vinyl, DVDs, and t-shirts sure to captivate Joy Division and New Order fans!
